This scheme originally appeared on the planning explorer a couple of years back and then went quiet, never gaining permission.

Application Number: 16F/0291
Site Address: Park Court Park Street Liverpool L8 6QH
Application Type: Full Planning Permission
ProposalTo convert and extend building including an additional storey to form 30no. self contained flats with associated parking, access and landscaping
Applicant: Mr Graham Clarke
The proposal was to convert / extend this former care home off Park Street in to 30 apartments, designed by BLOK architects.

Now, it seems it's back on track as 'City Terraces' with new owner RW Invest behind it. A slight increase to 34 units and a refreshed design. I'd expect to see a planning application soon...

City Terraces is the latest residential development from RWinvest and Nexus Residential. Located just a short walk from Liverpool’s historic and iconic docks, this development sits in the south of the city centre and will benefit from the vast regeneration taking place across Liverpool, including the vibrant and award-winning Baltic Triangle.

City Terraces will consist of 34 fully-managed 1 and 2 bed apartments in Liverpool, spread over 4 floors, to cater for the increasing demand for high quality residential property in the city.

Not the most earth shattering design, but another decent bit of infill, no doubt spurred on by the other investment in the numerous gap sites in the area.

The building is still in poor condition and can be seen in this video.

That ain't bad. A lot better than many with some outdoor access + balconies to sit out.

I went past this the other day. It really is in a terrible state. It's quite surprising really that they are still proposing to re-furbish it. Usually when a building is in such a poor state of repair, and is generally lacking in anything of architectural interest, you'd likely expect it to just be demolished. That is unless they fear not getting a three storey new build structure through planning in that location, and/or that density of flats, so have decided to stick with what they have. It'll be interesting to see whether they can make a silk purse out of this one.

Grey hoardings - of the same type that are on the various gap site housing developments nearby - now surround this site. There didn't appear to be any actual work on going this morning inside the building, although with the building in such a poor state, determining if something has been ripped out or if it was already missing is difficult. One to keep on eye on though, as it might be getting close to on-site.

We've gained a few Portakabins -

A look through the rear gates doesn't show much by way of progress, but those barriers suggests something is afoot -

A zoomed in version of the above image shows a bit of scaffolding or maybe a works platform on the other side of the building, hinting that this one is just about waking up -
